Professional Study Guide
Version 3.3

Certified Mobility Professional

This guide will help you prepare for the Aruba Certified Mobility Professional (ACMP) exam for ArubaOS
3.3, a proctored exam offered by Pearson VUE. The objective of this exam is to prove the candidate’s
ability to correctly identify the components and operation of an Aruba WLAN.

ACMP is a written exam of 75 multiple choice questions with a 90 minute length. You will be tested on
your knowledge of Aruba hardware, software licenses, theory of operations, and troubleshooting. This
exam assumes familiarity with the web interface and command line interface. The ACMP exam requires
a solid foundation in wireless LAN technologies and proficiency in the installation, configuration and
operation of Aruba Networks products. Whether an Aruba customer or partner, the exam tests for
comprehensive knowledge across the most common deployment scenarios.

Please note that additional versions of the ACMP exam are currently available, based upon ArubaOS 3.3.
Please be aware that these two operating systems and the corresponding exams are vastly different.
When preparing to take the ACMP exam, register for and take the exam for the AOS that you are most
familiar with.

Exam material is based largely on the content of the Aruba Networks’ core instructor-led courses
including Implementing Aruba WLANs (or Partner Technical Training) and Scalable WLAN Design &
Implementation. All ACMP candidates are strongly encouraged to complete the appropriate web-based
and instructor-led coursework before taking the exam.

In addition to the classroom training offered by Aruba it is highly recommend that candidates gain
additional experience before taking the exam. Candidates should:

- Review and become familiar with Aruba product documentation including the hardware
manuals and ArubaOS User Guide
- Review and practice configuring systems using the Aruba Best Practice Design Guides
- Practice or perform live demonstrations using Aruba equipment
- Gain sufficient hands-on field experience with Aruba hardware and software to obtain
familiarity with CLI equivalents of GUI configurations particularly related to configuration files
and troubleshooting

Exam Registration
Candidates can register for the Aruba ACMP exam through a Pearson VUE Authorized Test Center. The
website is www.pearsonvue.com/aruba/.
ACMP exam questions cover the topics listed below with at least one question for each topic. The
questions include key concepts, networking and topology design, GUI and CLI interpretation, GUI and CLI
troubleshooting, interpretation of CLI configuration file segments, and log output interpretation.
